And I never said you were limited to one a day! 😀

Oi not getting a lot of writing done today… yep the fibro pain has hit. OWIES! so I’m going to call it here for the night. And continue fresh tomorrow, I’ve left myself some notes in the document and have called up my outline in another window. And then… I found this gem on you tube for some fun inspiration. I’m thankful for inspiration in the most fun places! 😀

however I am happy for the 1000 words I did write! 😉

Sweet Dreams ya’ll

Thankful thought for the day

Leave a comment

Yay for smart phones and no more blood draws for the day! 😀

I had a moment to post the daily cal and the IOTD, and now thank you, Google Drive. I’m going to try to do some writing on the go. I hardly did any writing yesterday, between the lack of sleep and a headache…I just couldn’t. Anywho hope to change that now and tomorrow.

And I’m also thankful for the time to be able and get these tests done today. I’ll have tomorrow to recover from all the poking, and prodding. My body doesn’t handle the prodding very well. I’m not feeling the pain now…but I’m not  really looking to when it hits. So planning now to distract my body with my brain. Have an awesome day and I’m going to go write on my story! 😉

xoxo

World Kindness Day
November 13, 2014 in the World
The World Kindness Day is on November 13, 2014. It is a day that encourages individuals to overlook boundaries, race and religion. According to modern psychology, altruistic acts increases our own happiness in a profound way.
The World Kindness Day was introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement. It is observed in many countries, including Canada, Japan, Australia, Nigeria and United Arab Emirates.
Kindness is the act or the state of being kind – ie. marked by goodness and charitable behaviour, mild disposition, pleasantness, tenderness and concern for others. It is known as a virtue, and recognized as a value in many cultures and religions.

Sadie Hawkins Day
November 13, 2014 in the World
Here is a holiday that originated from a cartoon. It all began in Al Capp’s “Lil Abner Cartoon in the 1930’s. In the cartoon series, the mayor of Dogpatch was desperate to marry off his ugly daughter. So he created Sadie Hawkin’s Day. On this day, a race is held and all the single men were given a short head start. Then, all the single women, including the mayor’s daughter, chased the boys. If a girl catches her man, he had to marry her.
Sadie Hawkins Day races and events grew in popularity during the course of All Capp’s long running cartoon. This cartoon made holiday largely died out after 40 years when the cartoon was discontinued. It can occasionally be seen celebrated on college campuses.

Indian Pudding Day
November 13, 2014 in the USA
National Indian Pudding Day is observed on November 13, 2014. Indian pudding is a traditional New England dessert, “a cold-weather classic”. Seventeenth-century English colonists brought hasty pudding to North America and transformed it completely.
Lacking wheat, they substituted cornmeal, a grain they learned to cultivate from the indigenous peoples, which led to the new name Indian pudding, derived from their name for cornmeal, Indian meal. They substituted milk, which was plentiful, for water and added locally available sweeteners, either molasses or maple syrup, and spices when available, typically cinnamon and ground ginger.
Other traditional ingredients include butter and eggs for a smoother consistency and raisins and nuts for flavor and contrasting texture. Finally, Indian pudding is baked in a slow oven for several hours, transforming its texture from the porridge-like quality of hasty pudding to a smoother texture more typical of custard puddings.
The 20th century’s commercial puddings with their industrially perfect smooth consistency displaced Indian pudding and its cooking time had little appeal for the modern home cook. It is still associated with autumn holidays and occasionally revived by restaurants. It is usually served warm and sometimes accompanied by vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
